So Far So Good, But...

Vehicle

2003 Nissan Xterra SE S/C Rwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Review

I've had my Xterra for just over a week and I love it so far. Still, I REALLY wish the steering wheel tilted up higher. I'm 6'4/300 pounds and the extra room would come in handy getting in/out of the car. Other than that, I have plenty of leg room. Also, my gas mileage seems to be pretty marginal at best. I'm hoping that it will get better as the engine gets broken.

Favorite Features

Great exterior styling, sunroof, comfy seats, awesome stereo(!) and a good turn radius.

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage and acceleration! I traded in a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited, which had the best acceleration of any SUV I've ever owned. The Xterra has decent pick-up on the highway, but tends to lag from a full stop. The engine also tends to rev highly and shift a bit slowly.
